What will Canada look like in 2060?
- push factors in 2015 will be way different in 2060 like less job opportunities because there's already so much people, higher taxes for health care because there will be more seniors in 2060, the bigger the population the less resources the next generation will have,
- pull factors in Canada 2060 will include better health care, newest technology, futuristic living standers, immigration rate will be higher so more refugees, an ageing population
- Most of our population will come from south east Asia
I feel like Canada will be quite over populated with 52.6 million people and since most of the population will be old folk because in 2060 the birth rate will go down. Canada will actually be a good place for old people to settle if they have money. They need the health care and would probably want to do something with all that money for retirement. So they go off in retirement homes and more job opportunities for us AWSOME!
> birth rate: 10.28 births/1000 population
> death rate: 8.42 deaths/ 1000 population
> natural increase rate: 0.75%
> birth rate: 9.8 births/1000 population
> death rate: 11.64 deaths/1000 population
> natural increase rate: 0.139%
In 2060 there will be high death rates and low birth rates, yes there still we baby boomers but a really small period of time. which will consist of the population to be quite old I would say, not that it's a bad thing, ok it kinda is because we have to pay more tax for health care because of the old people and that's not fun.
in the future hence 2060 they will start to develop in the video right below i feel like it gives a good example of how this first nation community will look like in the future and how they will be different.
Better education, more striving community's, higher life expectancies (since they changed into better living standards) and hopefully change the way we think about them in the future.
-Canada in 2060?-
Today old people sit home and do nothing just play cards or hoard cats In there home (poor cats) but my prediction in the future is that we (yes I'll be 70 on day) will look 70 but have hearts like 40 year olds with some of that new and improved medication or some next red bull, not determined yet. life will still be fun and exiting, more activities to do and have a good time in our elderly age.
Therefore I'm pumped about getting old and experiencing this new furturistic world.
- science is a really big part in the development making new and improved medicines, agriculture and climate change
but lets jump into reality for a second, i talked about how Canada will ''look'' like in 2060 but what about ''how '' it got there. its really something to think about in the U.K investment in public funded research has dropped to less then 0.5% of the GDP the lowest it has ever been in 2 decades. this year the U.S has cut 3 million dollars in NASAS earth science budget which also includes climate science this means that existing climate studies will be ignored and useful data wont even be collected in the future. If we don't start from today then how are we going to reach the point everyone is saying in the next few years forget about 2060. they cut something that predicts the future of this world this effects the future of Canada in many ways such as health and environment.As we say -''we live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology ''-Carl sagan
